Lorry fire blocks motorway traffic in Huercal-Overa


THE A7 motorway was blocked to traffic going in the direction of Almeria first thing on Sunday morning after a fire broke out on a lorry loaded with juice and milk at a point level with Huercal-Overa.

The Andalucia 112 emergencies services reported the incident meant traffic had to be temporarily diverted via the N-340A between kilometre markers 559 and 546 while Bomberos del Levante firefighters extinguished the blaze.

There were no reports anyone was injured.

Less than two weeks ago a truck carrying 17,000 litres of caustic soda caught fire while travelling on the same motorway close to Viator after colliding with a car.

The lorry veered off the road and plummeted 15 metres down an embankment.
